About this Cook
There has never been a time I can't remember cooking. I made my brother toast and cereal at 5 years old and that is as far back as I can remember.
My favorite things to cook
I love making lasagna, it is so much fun to "build" something delicious. But my main priorities are simple southern cooking such as vegetables and good quality meat prepared in a variety of ways.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have many family recipes that have been passed down through the generations. The women in my family consider it mandatory to be a good cook and pride ourselves on our holiday and celebration dinners. We make all the old favorites as well as bringing in new dishes to spice things up. Invitations are coveted.

Mexican Cornbread II
This mexican cornbread was very good. I was baking it to go with my blackeyed peas and ham on New Years Day so I doubled the recipe. The only thing was I only added one can of the chile peppers because I was afraid it would be too much heat - no it would have been fine with two cans. Also when I baked it I used the cornstick iron skillet and the small iron skillet and put a little extra cheese on top at the end of baking. It turned out perfect, moist and tender on the inside and super crunchy on the outside - with a great kick but could have used a little more heat if I had the guts and added the 2nd can of chilis. This was gone the same day even though I was hoping to take some to work.

Cocktail Meatballs I
I have been using this recipe since the 70's taken from a certain iconic lady's cookbook with the initials "BC". My extended family always requests I bring this on holiday get-togethers (in the crockpot of course). Men and kids love it!

Sangria! Sangria!
I made this at my New Year's Eve Eve party and the guests loved it. Used 7-up instead of carbonated water and let it rest in the refrigerator overnight.
